Hi Folks — I wanted to introduce myself as your new incoming vice-chair/chair elect for ITART 2011. Thank you all so much for voting me in!! To tell you a bit more about myself, I was recently promoted to serve as the Adult Services & Programming Manager for Omaha Public Library. Prior to that, I held the position as Technology Librarian. However, I am wearing both hats until the new technology librarian starts. And I thought I was busy before!!
I received my MLIS at Louisiana State University and I have lived in West Virginia, New Mexico, Louisiana, Washington DC, Maryland and now I consider Omaha, Nebraska as home. I currently serve on two local boards: Douglas County Historical Society and daOMA (design alliance Omaha) and I was accepted to Leadership Omaha, a 10 month program to develop community leaders.
My most recent and current project is TEDx Omaha, where I serve as the TEDx Omaha Selection Committee Co-Chair. I was responsible for seeking out and curating speakers and performers for TEDx Omaha, scheduled for October 16, 2010. I am excited that one of our speakers will be Gary Wasdin, Director of Omaha Public Library, who will be talking about how libraries connect, inspire and transform communities.
Lastly, I would like to say that it is my professional and personal mission to make the library relevant in every person’s life.
